Entourage movie review: say goodbye to Hollywood

16 June 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hollywood does kinda make sense now: it’s a neverending frat party of talentless rich bastards. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of the show

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Did you know that Hollywood is really just a bunch of sex-crazed pathetic middle-aged white guys punch-drunk from ogling babes in bikinis and woozy with their own arrogance, and movies get made when they throw temper tantrums? Entourage is here to tell you that this is true, just like it told us this over and over again during eight seasons on HBO. (Disclaimer: I quit after the first season. I was soiled enough by that point.) Maybe now we’ll believe them? Lest you suspect this is parody, all you need do is look at Entourage itself, which desperately wants you to accept that “Vince Chase” is one »

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.

Alfred Molina Set For Tina Fey's New Comedy

11 February 2015 4:18 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Perhaps because of its potentially troubling title, the new Tina Fey comedy drama formerly known The Taliban Shuffle is currently without a name. There’s at least some good news on the casting front, though, as Alfred Molina, Billy Bob Thornton and Sheila Vand are now aboard.The story has been adapted from Kim Barker’s wartime memoir, subtitled 'Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan'. It charts her time as a journalist in Kabul in 2002, where with no foreign languages among her skillset and precious little idea how to get between Pakistan and Afghanistan, she was thrown in at the deep end. Slowly but surely, she grew to love the region, even as she became increasingly worried about its future.Fey is playing Barker, with Margot Robbie as Tanya, a competitive on-air news anchor who becomes friends with her, yet turns out to be ruthless in finding a story that will make her career, »

20. Dead Man Walking

Directed by: Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon earned herself an Oscar for her work in “Dead Man Walking,” a film directed by her then husband, Tim Robbins. She plays Sister Prejean, a nun who befriends a death row inmate named Matthew (Oscar nominated Sean Penn) as they confide in one another and build a convincing relationship as the days and hours tick down until his execution. Robbins intercuts the scenes with Sarandon and Penn with moments of the actual crime taking place, creating a storytelling rift that both supports and contradicts moments within the film, creating two very carefully drawn and developed characters. In addition to visiting him regularly, Prejean begins the crusade to find him a lawyer to make an appeal, doing all she can to delay his sentence being carried out. But, as she meets the families of the victims, she finds herself torn between right »
